Where I stayed
Victoria Falls Rest Camp and Lodges

Flag of Zimbabwe  ,
Wednesday, February 2, 2011

We left the smiling Botswanans to head into the unknown of Zimbabwe.  Our fears were soon dispelled on arrival to Victoria Falls where we were greeted by more happy locals eager to take our money.  While waiting at the border crossing Brendan used his bargaining skills to trade $1 USD for $50 billion Zimbabwe dollars.  This single note is worth nothing however but we can now claim to be billionaires.  We then went to the mighty Victoria Falls and were wowed by their shear power as millions of liters of water gush down the vertical drop, falling some 100 metres below.  This creates a fine spray that completely soaks you and spreads across the entire town.  We spent the night celebrating the end of the first leg of our tour and bid farewell to Andy and Jerone over several local beers at Hunters Bar.  It was a loose night on $1 beers.
